Nasty woman :(

I was out with Toffee earlier this evening & we came across this woman with her dog (I didnt recognise the breed , it was cute though , a friendly white fluffy terrier type dog)
Ive never seen her before , or her dog , but she stopped and asked me why would I get a 'fake' border collie ?
I told her that Toffee was a pure BC , just not KC reg as both his parents were working farm dogs
she replied id been conned and that he looked nothing like a BC cos his colour was wrong ... so I explained that BC's can come in a variety of colours and no I hadnt been conned and he was a pure BC
She then turned really nasty and started pulling Toffee to pieces , saying his ears werent pricked like they should be, his legs and muzzle are too long , his eyes werent 'right' (whatever that meant) etc etc

Now I am usually very polite with strangers , but i m not ashamed to say I didnt just stand there and take it ... no-one puts my baby down and gets away with it
She ended up storming off saying I was rude , lol

My Toffee is the most loyal , cuddly adorable dog anyone could wish for

so , heres my 'fake' BC , lol :D





Mucky mouth, ewww , lol

Toffee is lovely don't listen to her. I'd love to meet her with my lot and see what she says about them, 4 of them are pedigree BC's.

Some people!!

I personally love the look of your Toffee !!

We get told all the time that Jynx is a duck toller, and that we're wrong, that there's no way he could be a border....... (he does bleach out quite a bit in the summer, but he is noo duck toller, not that they are not beautiful dogs!!)

Some people just always think they know best.......


Here's a shot of him from the middle of last summer...

RE: Nasty woman :(

toffee is just beautiful! Stupid woman. When skye was a pup so many people asked what kind of x breed she was because of her mismarked coat. People are really quite ignorant to dogs that don't match the idealistic stereotypical dog. Even now people comment on how long her nose is or how light her eyes are. I'm obv not in the "real" bc category either! /lol

Your "fake" bc is gorgeous! I wonder what made her such an expert on bc's? It's not like she was walking around with one...some people...makes you just want to shake your head and walk away, but I am glad you put her in her place!
I asked god for a best friend and he gave me a Border Collie :heart:

Some people are so audacious...
I would not have taken it quietly either. If someone is bold enough (i.e. stupid enough) to make such comments, what they hear in return is just what they asked for. How she can say you are the rude one is hysterical....maybe she should answer why she has a fake dog???? lol

Eh, whatever....People are morons.

Yeah that woman is just a wannabe no-it-all that actually has no clue what she's talking about. Toffee is obviously a Border Collie. And a handsome one at that. Jynx too, both are very good lookin' BCs.

I love Toffee, he's beautiful!

More often than not, I get asked if Bria is a lab cross because she is short-haired. Fortunately, I've never had anyone tell me she's not full BC!

SHE is the rude one for making such ignorant comments about your dog. I don't understand why people have to be like that. Glad you put her in her place. Next time tell her madam let me give you some advice: Better to keep your mouth shut and let people assume you are an idiot rather than open it and prove them right.

Toffee looks fine to me ;]

Some odd peple about all over the world it has to be said.

I really, really wouldnt worry about it.

I can veen remember taking millie to the Vet once and as we got out of the car, a man said thats a nice dog, what kind is it, I said its a border Collie, thinking (duh...shes the typecast blackn white markings). The bloke said it wasnt because his family had collies all their life. I just smiledf and said well she is and moved on.

What a stupid lady!, Toffee is a lovely looking dog, some people, i would love to know if she has ever owned a bc, she had no right telling you this and to talk about Toffee like that, she was the rude one!, when Holly was a pup this man asked me if Holly was a Rottie!.

Some people are just so rude,
Toffee is bloody lovely!. fake or not, (and i,m sure he,s not!) what difference would that make to how you feel about your dog,
I have had both pedigrees and muts, and they were all equal to me,
Stupid woman should question herself, real dog lovers except all dogs no matter what shape size or breed,
